creating commotion for
notoriety.
Fieger added, "We don't
care if it is Jewish, Chaldean
or Japanese — we just do not
want development. We don't
want West Bloomfield turned
into an urban center."
Some Jewish leaders said
the incident has exasperated
to a point that increases ten-
sion between the two
communities.
Yet the American, Arab and
Jewish Friends group said
they don't believe the opposi-
tion stems from prejudices.
Members did not discuss the
issue during a recent ex-
ecutive board meeting.
"It doesn't appear to be a
Chaldean-Jewish issue," said
American, Arab and Jewish
Friends Co-Chairman Larry
Horwitz. "The fact that
Jewish people live nearby
doesn't really seem that rele-
vant. I would hate to think
this would create tensions."
David Gad-Harf, executive
director for the Jewish Com-
munity Council, added the
Council has been building

good relations with the Chal-
dean and Arab communities.
He said the JCCouncil wants
to schedule meetings with
Jewish and Chaldean people
in the West Bloomfield area
to "diffuse any tensions and
build bridges to better rela-
tionships."
Gad-Harf said Shenan-
doah's sale caused a
misunderstanding between a
few people that he hopes this
issue will not strain relations.

He said many Chaldeans
are moving into the West
Bloomfield neighborhoods,
causing some concern among
Jewish neighbors.
"It's hard to get a handle on
it, but there is some hostility,"
Gad-Harf said. "We will ap-
proach the issues as they
arise. Our focal area of con-
cern wil be making sure the
schools present multi-cultural
programs to help diffuse ten-
sions and prejudices."
Gad-Harf said JCCouncil
members plan to meet with
public school administrators
within the next two weeks. C

More Soviet Jews
Immigrate To Israel

New York (JTA) — A total of
4,537 Jews left the Soviet
Union in July, the second
highest monthly figure to
date, the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry reported.
Of that total, 648 Soviet
Jews, or 14.3 percent, went to
Israel, an increase of some 3
percentage points over June.
As many as 100 additional
Soviet Jews may have chosen
to immigrate to Israel from
transmigration facilities in
Vienna or Italy, according to
NCSJ spokesman Jerry
Strober.
Strober said the NCSJ
Soviet Jewry Research
Bureau is unable to account
for Soviet emigrants who
travel to Israel via Italy, some
of whom decide to settle in
Israel only after they have
been denied permission to
enter the United States as
refugees.
But if the unofficial
estimates prove accurate,
they would indicate some suc-
cess on the part of Jewish
assistance groups, which have
been trying to convince Soviet
Jews to choose Israel over
Western countries.
Most of the emigrants leave
the Soviet Union on Israeli
visas and then decide to set-
tle in the United States.
The number of non-Jews
leaving the Soviet Union on
Israeli visas came to 1,157,

according to the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews.
These include Pentecostal
Christians, for whom Israel
has agreed to issue visas.
The July figures bring the
Soviet Jewish emigration
total for 1989 to 26,688. If

More than 600
Soviet Jews, or
14.3 percent, went
to Israel, an
increase of some 3
percentage points
over June.

that rate is maintained, the
total number of Jews let out
of the Soviet Union in 1989
would reach 45,750 by the
end of the year.
